Someone dear to me had this mantra “Chase the dream, forget the scenery” and I try to honor her memory with as much appreciation for life that I finally realized that my passion was always waiting for me to give it the forefront. I am part thrifter, flipper, a dash of couponer, and entrepreneur. My ultimate goal in life is to find happiness with my choices and seriously just have fun with what I do. By day, I am an office manager for an IT/Engineer Staffing company, by night I am a reseller.
I have been selling on ebay since September 2016 and on/off poshmark since 2011 on a whim. With reselling on several platforms, I’ve gained a bunch of knowledge from soaking in every possible thing I can learn about reselling. Amazon FBA is a side project that I hope I will have more time to spend on (and money!) If you are new to eBay reselling, there are TONS of free resources all over the web.

I love books, odds and ends, kitsch, and high quality clothing – let’s just say an overall eclectic curiosity for everything. The boyfriend on the other hand has a photographic memory and if you tell him to remember something to find, it’s like a never ending scavenger hunt for him. My favorite part of flipping is getting my hands all over history and learning everything I can about a piece or item I would otherwise not have had the opportunity.
I am a proud fur mama of this sweetie-pie named Kahlua who goes by several other names such as Bear, Lulu, Jebediah, Kahlouie, Stinky, Booboo, and babygirl. High five to all my fellow pitbull lovers! Everything from french bulldogs, staffordshire terriers, american pitbulls, and mixes are my favorite breeds but I am a huge animal lover and advocate for the bully breed.
Thrift stores, yard sales, estates sales, and swap meets are my JAM!
My favorite quote for this business

Forget Everything And Run
Face Everything and Rise
